    From the Ford Commercial Truck website:
    F550 Chassis Cabs
    6.7 L V-8 Diesel
    6.8 L V-8 Gas

    F450 adds the 6.2 L V-8 to the mix.
    F350 offers 6.2 L V-8 and 6.7 L Diesel.

    The F450 CrewCab non-commercial truck offers only the Diesel. i.e. Crew Cab Dually Lariat with bed.

      Rescue

      We are currenlty looking at building a rescue with a 10' box, no water with the 550 4x4 crew cab with the V10 gas. We are fairly flat (Kansas) - sounds like the biggest issue will be the lack of low end torque?

        No problems so far... I can tell you that with 400hp and 850 lbs of torq this thing flies (empty). The 450 ann 550 will have the same 6.7
        How did you get lucky enough to have one donated to you?

          The 6.7 with 400hp and 800lbs of torque is the best bet for fire service

              Personally, I wouldn't get anything in it's first year. I've looked over the details of the new Scorpion engine, and it is insanely complicated. It has two independent cooling systems, reverse flow coolant, etc, etc.

              If I was searching for a Ambulance chassis for this model year, I'd lean towards a Ford F-650/750 with a Cummins B series engine mated to an Allison automatic, a combination with a proven track record of success.

              If that's too big, I'd look to GM's Duramax.

                The 6.7 is still unproven. After Fords mess with the highly unreliable piles of garbage 6.0 and 6.4 we are going to wait at least 2 years until we even think about going back to a ford diesel. We still run the ford gassers with huge success and the duramax engines with 0 issues.

                  Well, it's all well and fine to get all excited about a modified IscrewsU but WHAT are you going to put it in? GM isn't producing anything heavier than a 30/3500(1 ton). Which leaves you with junk,junk,and more junk. We don't run bone boxes so it won't affect my decisions any. T.C.

                    My Department just put a new 2011 F550 4x4 with the 6.7 diesel on line. It is a light rescue with 300 gallons of water. This truck has tons of power but maxes out at about 85mph on the interstate. Guess you really don't need to drive any faster anyway. We have not had any issues with it so far.
